Los Angeles Mapped Exhibition

The Library of Congress/Ira Gershwin Gallery presents historical maps of Los Angeles from the collections of the Library of Congress Geography and Map Division. These diverse works of craftsmanship, precision, and imagination provide a guide to some of the most remarkable stories of the city's history: its discovery, its growth, and its industries, as seen by explorers, engineers, artists, residents, and boosters.

Great on-line exhibition and resources.
